Week #9 comin' up!

Posted on July 15th, 2020
Everything is brown all around, but the farm is green as can be! Rain, and cooler temperatures for a few days have been very, very welcome. But of course, that won’t last.  This is a love, hate time of year for me.  I love the bounty that is about to smack me in the face, but hate farming... read more »

The longest day of the year!

Posted on June 17th, 2020
This week marks the summer Solstice!  June 21st is the longest day of the year with over 15 hours of daylight!  Kind of crazy to think that after that date the days progressively get shorter. All that daylight means that our plants are really putting on some growth.  It’s amazing... read more »

Wind, rain and snow oh no! Week #5

Posted on June 10th, 2020
If you have been reading these weekly Farm Happenings you can see I worry and talk about weather a lot!

And what weather we have been having for the past few days.  Between... read more »
